  1. Nice work on the intake, here is one in real life: Jari
  2. Those are the smaller AGM-12B Bullpup A while the ones i mentioned are the larger AGM-12C Bullpup B: The designations does get a bit confusing. Here is one on a A-7: Jari
  3. I came across this site: https://www.nrchobbyshop.com/ i had seen it before but now they have added mail order and model kits as well, not a huge selection right now and when i asked, they are looking are expanding their line, just don't when. Their prices are pretty darn good if you ask me, i ordered a Trumpeter 1/32 A-6A for a lot less that i have seen elsewhere. The shipping is free Canada wide for orders is over $100. Jari
  4. Eric it is nice to have a first hand source for info for your build. As for the load, the large Bullpups would be nice, and correct, but i don't think anyone makes them in 1/32 scale. You could go with an easy one, M-117s on each pylon as seen at the 2:00 mark of this video: https://www.criticalpast.com/video/65675051012_USS-Ranger_ordnance-personnel_A-7A-aircraft_holding-fuse-bomb Jari
  5. Technically it's CF-188 not CF-118, anyway here is a listing of bombs dropped during that operation: Ordnance expended 500-pound bombs, GBU-12 type 495 2,000-pound bombs, GBU-10 type 188 500-pound bombs, GBU-38 type 11 2,000-pound bombs, GBU-31 type 2 Jari
  6. Eric, if you want to add a few "details" to your Corsair: the dots on the panels are for anti-corrosion on the fasteners. Or how about a load of Snakeyes and Bullpups, with proximity fuzes on them: Jari
  7. Nice subject Eric, one thing to note the A/B version had different panels lines in some areas, the US Navy A-7 Corsair II Units of the Vietnam War has drawings (if they can be trusted) that show them. One other difference is the air start receptacle on the A/B is on the port side. Jari
  8. From what i have seen on the net, due to the size of the GBU-24 only one in the forward stations could be loaded and another had to be in the aft station on the opposite side. Then you could have something smaller beside them if need be. Jari
  9. From the carrier's cruise book: https://www.navysite.de/cruisebooks/cvn71-06/517.htm the ordnance totals are for the whole carrier's Air Wings which isn't that much bombs really so most likely the GU-24 wasn't used. Also the right target may not have been available for the larger LGB. That doesn't mean they weren't loaded, just not used. Jari
  10. Some info and details about the TBM-3 can be found in this manual: https://www.docdroid.net/QTdBsfK/grumman-tbm-3-avenger-pilots-handbook.pdf Jari
  11. You could always go with one Y rack and a single launcher on the other side: Jari
  12. Not as menacing but a smaller warhead made it so the whole rocket fit inside the tubes: https://www.criticalpast.com/video/65675024125_F8-Crusader_ground-crewmen-wear-headset_ordnance-men-loading-bombs_plane-in-parking-area Jari
  13. Here are a couple of pics of a Marine F-4 with the LAU-33: You can always try using some 1/35 scale 152mm ammo shells as the warheads in case you don't want to use up any aftermarket ones that come in sets. Jari
  14.

  15. Looks like an attention grabber for this company: https://www.serigrafikapubblicita.com/chi-siamo/ Jari
